At long last, Lebanese businessman Bassam Jawhary has been booted out of the late Milad R. Hage’s estate after almost six years of legal battle over the property between him and the late Milad R. Hage’s wife, Oumou Sirleaf Hage.

A communication addressed to Jawhary on March 18, 2015 under the signature of the Clerk of Court, Edwin S. Boimah, by directive of the assigned Judger, Her Honor Eva Mappy Morgan, Mr. Jawhary was informed that the court’s communication of March 2, 2015 suspending his letters of testamentary to administer the estate of the late Mild R. Hage is modified to the effect that said letters testamentary is revoked with immediate effect.

The court ordered Mr. Jawhary to submit a comprehensive inventory of the3 estate to the court as stated in the December 26, 2015 mandate, as well as a detailed statement pertaining to the loan facility at Ecobank with the estate.

The court also reminded Mr. Jawhary, who is said to be on the run, that he is under investigation for allegation of malpractices which is reported to have committed by him while administering the affairs of the estate as executor.

Accordingly, the Monthly and Probate Court is also reported to have communicated with tenants of the late Milad R. Hage’s estate informing them of this latest judgment of the court under the gavel of Judge Eva M. Morgan, Chief Judge of the Commercial Court of Liberia who is mandated by the Supreme Court to preside over the matter for the expeditious determination of the late Milad R. Hage’s estate case which has been at the Probate Court at the Temple of Justice since 2010 without determination.

The Monthly and Probate Court indicated that the Curator of the court Stephen Clarke has been duly appointed by the court in conjunction with the late Milad R. Hage’s wife, Oumou Sirleaf Hage to with immediate effect take over the estate of the late Milad R. Hage who is represented by her mother.

The court further ordered that any and all decisions concerning the properties must meet the approval of the court. The court mandated the tenants to make all rental payments of the Hage’s estate in account Number #001LD 40389468601 and #001USD 40389468602 at the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) and furnish the office of the assigned Judge, Her Honor Eva Mappy Morgan, with copies of the bank payment slips in consultations with the Monthly and Probate Court for Montserrado County. The tenants were cautioned that their failure to adhere to the court’s order will leave the court with no alternative but to proceed against them accordingly.
